OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Egg Beaters is putting a classic breakfast combination – eggs and cheese – in a nutritious and convenient package with new Egg Beaters Three Cheese. Made with real Swiss, cheddar and provolone cheeses, Egg Beaters Three Cheese provides the deliciousness of one of breakfast's most perfect pairings with the nutritious benefits of Egg Beaters that consumers know and love.
Like all Egg Beaters varieties, Three Cheese is made of real, all-natural egg whites and offers a filling, flavorful breakfast without the extra cholesterol, fat or calories of shell eggs. Each serving of Egg Beaters Three Cheese has 4 grams of lean protein for just 25 calories – less than half the calories of a shell egg. Plus, Egg Beaters are fortified with important vitamins, such as A, B-12, D and E, and other essential nutrients, such as folic acid and riboflavin.
"Consumers have demonstrated time and time again their preference for adding cheese to their Egg Beaters," says Jill Dexter, Egg Beaters Brand Manager for ConAgra Foods. "With Egg Beaters Three Cheese, we're making it even easier to have a protein-packed, nutritious breakfast with significantly fewer calories and less fat and cholesterol than a similar breakfast made using eggs with yolks."
